Re: Short Road Trip in BWM i3

Great video! Thanks for sharing. I am getting read to take my first ever long trip in my i3S. Although this is i3 #2 for me, I have never traveled more than 50 miles one way anywhere. I am planning a 6-7 hour, 420 mile drive from Calabasas, CA to Scottsdale, AZ. I'm planning on using electric for 25...

Re: Replaced Deka Silver trim with Dark Oak Wood Trim

Looks great. My first i3 had Deka silver trim. I liked it, but never loved it. My current has the dark oak wood and I LOVE it. Great job! Congrats!

Re: Powered seats retrofit

Amazing job. Honestly powered seats are the ONLY thing that bothers me about my i3S. $60k car! Insane with our cheap seats!

Re: Code P0440

Deutsch100: Thanks for the reply. Doesn't sound encouragin, but hopefully mine won't be as problematic as yours was. Do you recall what the charge was for replacing the valve? Your warranty paid for yours but I'm on my own with this one. I was under factory warranty, and this P0440 code came up 3 d...

Re: Code P0440

My 2019 i3S Rex that BWM bought back from me got this code over and over again, even after the dealer replaced valves, charcoal canister and something pressurized with the fuel tank. After the 4th repair for the same thing as the problem you experienced, BMWNA semi easily bought my car back. My 2020...

Re: I'm a newbie.

Be wary of the Facebook groups. There is a lot of whining and talk of "coding" your car to defeat the intent of BMW and it's EV functions. There is some good info out there, but just be careful with the information. I am a member of the largest Facebook i3 group, and there is not much whining ;) Th...

Re: End of production

So I talked to the dealer. He said that our area (not sure if he meant Mid Atlantic or the entire East Coast) isn't getting i3 allocations by default- only by orders. He said that the orders are open until October, and he has no info on what is coming afterwards. He made me a nice offer- I could co...

Re: End of production

During the last 12 months our local BMW dealers had essentially NO i3 in stock, and in the last month now...they all have 2-4 in stock, including i3S and even a few BEV (although most are REX). Similar at BMW of Honolulu which has 1 i3 and 3 i3S, all 2021 models. Either BMW of Honolulu has finally ...

Re: End of production

MKH, I haven't been to my dealer in a long time – it's really disappointing to hear that the ones in your area have switched to order-only. This has been the issue for the last year or so - but may have been exacerbated by the COVID BMW plant shutdown. Was pleasantly surprised to actually see two n...

Re: My first 24 hours with a 2020 i3s REX

I am on i3S #2 and the FIRST thing I did on both was 3M Ceramic window tinting on E V E R Y window including the sunroof! The i3 is a hot box without ceramic tinting. Also, the car will look even better and super cool when tinted. It makes a huge difference. MUST tint windows!! My first i3S was Dek...
